On 17 November 2016, the Faculty of Electrical Engineering (FKE), Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), organised an industrial visit for students undertaking the subject “Introduction to Electrical Engineering”. The visit was conducted at Venture GES Manufacturing Services (M) Sdn. Bhd., Senai, Johor. The main objectives of the visit to Venture GES Manufacturing Services (M) Sdn. Bhd. were to allow the students to gain exposure on electrical/electronic industries and be aware of the responsibilities as electrical/electronic engineers. The visit was necessary for the students to fulfill part of the requirements for completing the subject “Introduction to Electrical Engineering”, where at the end of the 12-week course, the students were expected to be able to (i) analyse and describe the responsibilities of engineers to the society; (ii) explain the importance of sustainable solutions; (iii) be accountable on assigned tasks in an ethical manner; and (iv) manage a project. The visit to Venture GES Manufacturing Services (M) Sdn. Bhd. was fruitful for the students where the students had the chance to visit various electrical/electronic assembly processes. UTM FKE wishes to thank Venture GES Manufacturing Services (M) Sdn. Bhd., especially Mr. Winson Chan (General Manager), Mr. Andy Yeo (Head of Engineering) and their colleagues, for entertaining the visit.
